New atheism worse than Xtianity

The New Atheists really don’t get it: they have spoiled an important opportunity to challenge Christianity by proposing something even more stupid. The question is not atheism (or theism), which has an ancient and honorable legacy in religion itself, but the narrow world view that comes packaged with the atheism. This confusion is first visible in Nietzsche who constantly stripped the universe of properties that might give the faintest challenge to an atheism view, which also echoes the rising scientism of the time.

The New Atheists can’t win against Xtianity with the cult they have manufactured, and atheists outstanding should not endorse this adolescent style of thinking. A dialectic of atheism, on the hand, is perfectly OK. The point is to move on to something more robust, that can serve the public better than this concoction of Harris, Dawkins, et al.

It is almost incredible that a Buddhist atheist can’t even have a discussion with a new atheist, who will recoil in fear, contempt, refusal to dialogue and a clear unconsciousn desire to exterminate all religions via the critique of monothesim.

It is worth recalling that Sam Harris the New Age hypocrite exposed his interest in New Age religion in his book on atheism. Later changing his story.

    The two serve the same purpose: keeping people ignorant of their spiritual potential.
